Delaney’s entire world is thrown into chaos after she is mistaken for Lissa Olena, an alien princess hiding out on Earth in order to escape an arranged marriage.
Kidnapped by the princess’s head bodyguard, Ruckus, and imprisoned in an alien palace, Delaney is forced to impersonate the princess until Olena can be found. If she fails, it will lead to an alien war and the eventual enslavement of the entire human race.
No pressure or anything.
Factor in Trystan, the princess’s terrifying betrothed who is intent on unraveling all her secrets, and her own growing feelings for Ruckus, and Delaney is in way over her head.
Get lost Amid Stars and Darkness, in this YA sci-fi romance from debut author Chani Lynn Feener.
I am so in love with this book! I like the character development the plot progression, the tension between the characters; Delaney, Ruckus and Trystan. I love the action sequence and the dash of romance of the book! I love the writing style where is the author eventually had me hooked and made me curioser and curioser about what is to happen next in the characters.
I developed a special liking towards Trystan, I don’t know why but he seems to be a quite redeemable character as so I’ve seen in his development throughout the book. I like his intensity though there’s a bunch of sketchy and creepy towards his character since his eyes seem to always gleam in malice. But, I’m hoping for a better change next book.
The budding romance that I sensed between Ruckus and Delaney the moment he took her from the alley was so awaited I am so happy when their ship finally set sail. *sighs* hot alien dude. The whole time the two of the, were let alone in a room I was all like:
There’s politics and power play and I like how Delaney laid down her cards that helped her survive the play of pretend. Also that ending? INSANE! Like seriously, the author knows how to make a cliffhanger that had the reader clawing for the next book!
Recommended not only for the fans of sci-fi romance books but for everyone especially those of the fans of the TV show Star-Crossed. Amazing amazing book you guys.
